Design is a language that connects us to the objects we create. In each work I strive to create a graphic language that captures the spirit of the project with presence and meaning.
About / Profile
Welcome and thanks for visiting Nychuk Design, the graphic design practice of Josh Nychuk. I began Nychuk Design in 2011 after previously working for a design and photography agency in Toronto and a boutique graphic design firm in Victoria. I now work independently and occasionally with other professionals to focus on projects related to identity, editorial and print; for services in graphic design, photography and web development. Working with businesses, institutions and individuals my purpose is to help define and articulate your offering and unique vision.
Nychuk Design is a graphic design studio based in Vancouver BC, that designs identities, logos, books, blogs, posters, websites; and photographs architecture, product and portraiture. Services include; Project Consultation, Graphic Design, Photography, Website Design, Copywriting and Print Management; for individuals and organizations across business and culture.
All projects go through a simple 3 step process of; Discover → Design → Deliver.
Through analysis, conversation and research an understanding about the unique nature of your project is assembled. This information is captured in the creative brief and will act as a guide throughout the design process.
Conceptual ideas are developed to test as possible solutions for the project at hand. The concepts are taken through an iterative process—reviewed, evaluated and refined to establish a single focused direction.
The final design is described, documented and ready for print production or immediate use. Print management and website support are offered and handled on an individual basis.
A formal meeting or casual conversation is required to discuss the need for design services. The purpose is to acquire an understanding of your problem, or what you would like to achieve. This is typical in the discovery phase for any project and first-time consultations are always free.
The most fundamental service that summarizes a wide variety of sub-services. Design for print and digital, typical items include—visual identities, logos, books, posters, stationery and general print ephemera, typography and websites. Whichever end product you require, all designs are bespoke.
For identity projects I work with you or your board to develop a creative vision that distinctly identifies you or your company from the crowd. The most straightforward program for visual identity consists of; logo, typography and colour use; applied to the communication materials you require. A more complex program involves; message strategy, imagery, symbols, typography, etc., along with documenting the rules of the identity into a guideline manual for use. Both forms of service are offered, and please do not hesitate to consult first on which program suits your needs.
Services are commissioned for commercial and editorial assignments, for architecture/interior design, product and portraiture. Architecture and interior assignments require a preliminary site visit to assess natural light and spatial limitations. Product and portraiture require initial consultation to learn the background and nature of the subject. All assignments are priced on a per project basis, please call or email for bookings and estimates.
All websites are developed as responsive websites (resize your browser window to see responsiveness in action). This means your customer or audience will enjoy the best viewing and user-experience for whichever device—desktop, tablet, mobile—they access from. All projects require a preliminary consultation to understand the nature of your content and how a website will best benefit your business or communication objectives. Please call or email to setup a website design consultation.
